Chai-Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes approximately 28 cookies
2 1/4 cups gluten-free or all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon organic ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon organic ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon organic ground cardamom
1 cup organic butter, softened
1 cup organic light brown sugar
1/2 cup organic sugar
2 organic eggs
2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract
1 tin Spicely Organics Organic Chai 60% Dark Chocolate, chopped
Heat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Sift the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and cardamom together in a medium bowl. In a second bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar and sugar together using a hand or stand mixer. Beat on low speed until the butter and sugar are mixed. Add the eggs and mix again. Stir in the vanilla.
Combine the dry mixture with the wet mixture, and mix on low speed for about 30 seconds. Add the chopped chocolate and stir until evenly dispersed.
Scoop round tablespoons of dough onto the baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies are golden on top. Remove from oven and cool on the pan for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
